Eggless Dates Cake

This was the first cake I ever baked and the recipe was adapted from showmethecurry.com. with only one change- Replaced all purpose flour with wheat flour!
This is a simple eggless cake for beginners and tastes heavenly.So far I would have made this cake more than 10 times and never failed.

Wheat flour: 1.25 cups
Condensed milk: 1 can (14 oz)
Butter: 1 stick (1/2 cup)
Baking soda: 1.5tsp
Baking powder: 1 tsp
Walnuts:1/2 cup


Procedure:
Step1:
Soak the dates in hot water for 30 min


Step2:
Bring the butter to room temperature (can microwave for 10 seconds as well)


Step3:
Grind the dates with very little water as possible


Step4:
Mix the butter and dates puree well.Mix the condensed milk as well


Step5:
Sift together all the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda and baking powder)


Step6:
Mix together both the dry and wet ingredients


Step7:
Finally fold in the walnuts


Step8:
Pour the batter into a greased 9 x 9" baking pan


Step9:
Bake in a preheated oven of 350C for 40 minutes
